|Plot Summary of Keeper of the Light|
Love Spell, Jan 2003, 5.99, 320 pp.
In 400 CE Ireland, The King's Champion Donail accompanied by his soldiers visits the standing circle where the healer Rioghan allegedly lives. Donail wants Rioghan to help an ailing woman. At first she wants to refuse him because men are avaricious and would seek to steal the treasure of the Sidhe, the Little People of ancient Eire that she lives near and protects. However, Donail seems honorable.
Donail wants Rioghan and begins a courtship to win her trust. However, a spell is cast on Donail that places Rioghan in a bind. If she intercedes she must do so with dark forbidden magic to save her beloved, but if she does not, he will remain lost to her and to himself forever inside the enchantment. Her friends the Sidhe plead with Rioghan to trust in the cleanest purest magic of them all love rather than giving up as THE KEEPER OF THE LIGHT for the dark side.
